Companies in the news:
Toronto-Dominion Bank (TSX:TD). Up 12 cents, or 0.14 per cent, to $88.40. TD Bank was urged to make firm commitments to better benefit underserved communities at a public meeting Thursday about its proposed takeover of Memphis-based First Horizon Bank. The virtual meeting, convened jointly by the Federal Reserve Board and the U.S.Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, which are reviewing the proposed US$13.4-billion deal, heard from several groups concerned about TD's track record of serving Black and Latino clients. Rachel Labush, a supervising attorney at Community Legal Services of Philadelphia, pointed to an investigative report from 2018 that found TD was, among large banks, the most likely to deny a loan application from a Black person or Latino. Like several other speakers, she urged regulators to make the merger's approval contingent on a strong community benefits agreement, with commitments including increased access to mortgage lending for Black and brown borrowers, more lending to small businesses, and increased branches in underserved neighbourhoods.
